The eExam is an electronic exam at the end of the course. In a computer pool, students take their eExam on workstation computers equipped with a secure exam environment.

We have summarized some general information for instructors who would like to conduct an eExam.

Use of an eExam

eExams are conducted via the learning management system ILIAS, which also forms the basis of our eCampus learning platform. Many of our students are already familiar with eCampus. eExams offer a variety of advantages, e.g.:

  • Integration of multimedia elements, such as images, videos, and audio files for multiple tasks.
  • Automated assessment to accelerate correction and reduce errors.
  • Data analysis to improve teaching content and methods.
  • Safety mechanisms guarantee that exams are fair and free from cheating.
  • eExam results can be securely archived, making it easier to manage and track student performance.

Also visit the eCampus Confluence area for more information and tips.

Types of Tasks

Your eExams can consist of a variety of these task types or combinations of them:

  • Single-Choice
  • Multiple-Choice
  • Free text questions
  • Hotspot-Tasks
  • Fill-in-the-Blank-Tasks
  • Short Answer Tasks

Hybrid scenarios

In addition to the pure form of the eExam, hybrid scenarios can also be carried out, in which the eExam system is not used alone. These include:

  • Examinations in which special media or defined websites are used for research.
  • The integration of subject-specific applications.

Mock Exams

We also explicitly offer the execution of mock exams. These can be used regularly as exam preparation before the actual exam or allow the examiners to try out the eExam procedure in a kind of trial run in order to then change the actual exam in one of the following semesters.

Where do the eExams take place?

The eExams are currently held in the gymnasium at Nachtigallenweg 86, 53127 Bonn. The waiting area is outside in front of the entrance on the forecourt.
